02:45 <CoderForLife> I guess this low pressure system is giving me high pressure sinuses

02:45 * CoderForLife woke up with a headache

02:46 <Tank_Master> not good

02:46 * CoderForLife nods

02:46 <CoderForLife> ouch

02:46 <CoderForLife> was having terrible dreams as well

02:47 * CoderForLife looks at the weather radar

02:48 <CoderForLife> various sprinklies out there

02:55 *** desti_T2 has joined #boinc

02:56 <CoderForLife> yup - I wuz just looking at that radar view myself

02:56 <Tank_Master> lol

02:56 <Tank_Master> nice

02:58 <CoderForLife> waa.. another new Firefox version??

02:58 <CoderForLife> hmm

02:58 <efc> some CM CF

02:59 <CoderForLife> hello efc - what's that you're saying?

03:00 <efc> shorthand :) they checked in some bad code or something

03:00 <CoderForLife> yeah, that's what I was thinking

03:00 <CoderForLife> I *just* applied .10

03:00 <CoderForLife> now .11

03:01 <CoderForLife> "This release corrects a compatibility issue with some websites and extensions discovered in Firefox"

03:01 <CoderForLife> in other words - they broke it

03:01 <efc> rolled $60 worth of quarters

03:02 <efc> have a lot more change, but checking it against collection is taking forever

03:02 <CoderForLife> I did the CoinStar thing not too long ago

03:02 <Tank_Master> anywho, im outa here

03:02 <Tank_Master> gn

03:02 <CoderForLife> cya T_M

03:03 <efc> checking it against de collection is the painful part

03:03 <efc> which i hadn't updated since 1993

03:03 <CoderForLife> I did the "state quarters" review before taking my change to be counted

03:03 <efc> too (@#$@ many of them

03:04 <efc> 5 per year, 2 mints each

03:04 <CoderForLife> also the wheat pennies review

03:04 <CoderForLife> plus the bicenntenial quarters review

03:04 <efc> yeah, i don't think those will ever be worth anything

03:05 <efc> made almost 2 billion of them and lots of people save em

03:05 <CoderForLife> after all that, I had over $400 in change that I converted into Amazon points

03:05 <CoderForLife> I had 52 $1 coins

03:06 <efc> gold ones?

03:06 <CoderForLife> some, yes

03:06 <CoderForLife> I like them better than the silver ones

03:06 <efc> I did find one quarter that looks like it has a double struck mint mark, might hang on to it

03:07 <CoderForLife> certainly do

03:09 <efc> need to get new books. most of mine run out years ago.

03:09 <CoderForLife> sure

03:10 <CoderForLife> I don't keep up with my coin collections - only driven by "big events"

03:11 *** desti has quit IRC

03:13 <freelarry> got a few rolls of the new sac dollars i had been buying from 2000 to 2005

03:14 <freelarry> but gave up on the collections again

03:14 <CoderForLife> hello freelarry

03:15 <CoderForLife> I personally placed no value on the dollar coins

03:15 <freelarry> nope me neither but got some for later anyway

03:15 <CoderForLife> after all - I got them as stamp vending machine change =)

03:18 <freelarry> lunch money mostly

03:20 <CoderForLife> well - I guess I should try to lay back down for awhile

03:20 <CoderForLife> the head meds seem to be working

03:21 <CoderForLife> been up about an hour

03:21 <CoderForLife> 3:23am now

09:19 <mweltin> hey

09:19 <quail> w00t I wrote some C++ code tonight with little mentoring :-)

09:20 <quail> added some Items to a menu and just to activate them in the C++ code to work

09:21 <mweltin> gui work?

09:21 <quail> yeah

09:22 <mweltin> well you are way ahead of me.   I did a gui once, it was such a pain in the ass I never did it again.

09:22 <mweltin> I might give the Wxwidgets a shot

09:22 <mweltin> I think I used some GTK graphics package the first time.

09:22 <mweltin> mitv?

09:22 <quail> GUI stuff is easy with glade 3

09:23 <quail> it the programming the C++ code to work with the GUI is the pita part

09:23 <mweltin> based on callbacks?

09:24 <quail> toggles

09:24 <mweltin> can a compiled app work in windows?

09:25 <quail> I don't know what I am doing fully, I am just a hacker and can work lot things out from seeing the code

09:25 <quail> huh I am not sure

09:25 <mweltin> isn't that what we are all really?

09:26 <quail> prob not with out having to rewrite some the code

09:28 <quail> here is my little write up about Me TV >>>

09:28 <quail> and there some screenies too

09:29 <mweltin> as I recall there is gtk+ for windows

09:37 <mweltin> nice work quail

09:37 <quail> when I started using Me TV I had a 64MB nvidia card and it worked fine

09:38 <quail> but now I have a 128MB nvidia card

09:38 <mweltin> you plug your cable TV right into it?

09:39 <mweltin> is there a card that can get just regular TV (braodcast TV)

15:14 <PriitM>

15:14 <PovAddict> lolwut

15:14 <PriitM> little conversation with computer kenjus

15:15 <PriitM> he built very own CPU and it has 1tb of ram =)

15:15 <PovAddict> you mean cache?

15:15 <PovAddict> heh that would be cool

15:15 <PovAddict> 1tb of L1 cache XD

15:15 <PriitM> he just said 'memory' :P

15:15 <PovAddict> how many millions does it cost?

15:16 <PriitM> and later he told that he's going to MIT

15:16 <PriitM> pasted convo(set it as my index.htm)

15:16 <PovAddict> yeah I read it

15:17 <PriitM> god i love 'smart' people :>

15:17 <PovAddict> s-m-r-t

15:17 <PriitM> s.m.a.r.t

15:19 <PovAddict> ask him if it's dual core

15:19 <PovAddict> and how he solved the cache coherency problems that would happen with multicores

15:19 <PriitM> he was going to work(right...)

15:19 <PovAddict> that alone might make his head asplode

15:20 <PriitM> if people like that go to MIT... :/

15:20 <PovAddict> lol

15:21 <PovAddict> going to MIT or whatever doesn't  mean somebody knows about something...

15:23 <PriitM> i wonder how much did he had to pay to get accepted there(IF he got accepted)

15:24 <efc> &cyborg SMART

15:24 <Romulus> efc: S.M.A.R.T.: Synthetic Mechanical Android Responsible for Troubleshooting

15:24 <PovAddict> I know about cache coherency on CPUs because I read about it in wikipedia

15:25 <efc> There should be a U. of Wikipedia where you just read it for 4 years and take a bunch of tests

15:25 <PovAddict> I guess that's the diff... it doesn't matter where you learn it, you gotta be interested in the topic (schools force you to learn stuff without caring if you care)

15:25 <PriitM> indeed

15:25 <PriitM> I'm forced to study music history, but my only passion(lol) is computers

15:25 <PovAddict> music history? that sucks

15:26 <PriitM> indeed

15:26 <PovAddict> I failed on music at school (along with lots other subjects lol) because all we really had was that history crap

15:26 <efc> I didn't like it because it wasn't in depth enough

15:27 <PovAddict> hence why marks on music exams @ school were low, yet I can play a song on the keyboard after listening to it once or twice

15:27 <PovAddict> argh I hate this weather

15:27 <PriitM> I've never been into music, as a matter of fact music teachers have always being bitchy to me

15:28 <PovAddict> none of what I know of music was thanks to school

15:28 <efc> they are like PE teachers, if you aren't good at it, they don't care about you

15:28 <PriitM> efc, indeed

15:29 <PriitM> I know little about music(timeframes of periods etc.) thanks to it, but I will never ever need them

15:29 <efc> the bad students are the ones that stand to learn the most

15:30 <PriitM> this school system sucks anyways :P

15:30 <PovAddict> I thought the school systems worldwide suck?

15:31 <PriitM> got no idea

15:31 <PriitM> but here we're forced to study little from everything instead of getting deep in some specific area

15:32 <PriitM> I'd rather take math, computer science, english and physics lessons instead of taking little from bunch of absolutely different lessons

15:33 <PovAddict> because you aren't interested in the rest

15:33 <PriitM> true

15:33 <PriitM> how many system administrators need to know how oxygen reacts with carbon :/

15:34 <PovAddict> that is interesting to me, even if I don't need it

15:34 <PriitM> well yeah, that is interesting, but there's no point of studying it for like 5 years

15:34 <PovAddict> but it's wrong to force people to learn about it

15:34 <PriitM> indeed

15:34 <PovAddict> and force them to pass the exams

15:34 <PovAddict> and if you don't pass the exams, well...

15:35 <PriitM> then you have to go to school for another year(at least that is how it's done here)

15:35 <PovAddict> then it doesn't matter how well you were doing on the subjects you *are* interested in, you phail

15:35 <PriitM> I'm going to have 5 exams in 1-2 years

15:36 <PriitM> math, estonian language, english and 2 of my own choice

15:36 <PriitM> <3 exams

19:20 <rubiks120> yea, gotta love new england

19:20 <Tank_Master> we get that every year here

19:20 <rubiks120> its actually going to be one of those weird nights that it gets warmer instead of colder

19:21 <Tank_Master> it did that here last night

19:21 <rubiks120> so by morning it will be slightly above freezing

19:21 <rubiks120> and just nasty outside

19:21 <Tank_Master> was 37f at noon and 45f at midnight

19:21 <Tank_Master> ohh.. yeah

19:21 <Tank_Master> thats the worst, you get that layer of watter ontop the ice...

19:22 <rubiks120> yup, fortunately I dont have to drive anywhere and I dont have to go anywhere until noon so its not a problem for me

19:23 *** NOTevil has joined #boinc

19:24 <Tank_Master> well thats a good thing

19:24 <Tank_Master> Im to go to work tomorrow...

19:24 <rubiks120> yup

19:24 <Tank_Master> should be interesting if the creek here dose flood overnight

19:24 <rubiks120> Im still tryin to get through college

19:25 <rubiks120> its definately proving harder then I thought it would be

19:26 <Tank_Master> I hear ya

19:27 <rubiks120> but, Im 2 weeks from 3 semesters done

19:27 <Tank_Master> congrats!

19:28 <rubiks120> thanks

19:28 <rubiks120> its an experience, I can tell you that much

19:29 <Tank_Master> true

19:29 <rubiks120> i still havent fully adjusted to having everything in a single room

19:29 <efc> I don't think i could go back for that reason,,

19:30 <Tank_Master> lol

19:30 <rubiks120> haha

19:30 <rubiks120> its not horrible, its just a little cramped at times

19:30 <Tank_Master> there not enough room for all the comps

19:30 <rubiks120> we have a good setup here though

19:30 <rubiks120> we got 3 computers in this room, soon to be 4

19:31 <rubiks120> if everything goes well for me

19:33 * efc imagines the DEC idea of a 1985 dorm room: a central DEC microvax with nice DEC VT100 terminals for each student

19:33 <rubiks120> DEC?

19:33 <PovAddict> are there any cheap terminals nowadays?

19:33 <Tank_Master> hehe

19:33 <Tank_Master> DEC is old

19:34 <rubiks120> I cant say I've ever heard of DEC

19:34 <Tank_Master> baught by IBM then later sold to Intel

19:34 <PovAddict> Sun has some graphical terminals but they cost similar to a cheap desktop computer afaik...

19:34 <zombie67> those are SunRay

19:34 <PovAddict> yeah that

19:34 <zombie67> not exactly terminals

19:35 <Tank_Master> had some great high end server CPUs before intel baught them.  Now they are working on the itanium and later projects

19:35 <efc> DEC->compaq->hp

19:35 <zombie67>

19:35 <Romulus> <> (at

19:35 <Tank_Master> was it HP befor intel?

19:35 <Tank_Master> cant rememebr right off

19:35 <efc> don't think intel bought them, they might have picked up some Alpha engineers

19:36 <efc> I saw this old VAX manual. It had a picture with a big while room. Nothing in it but the "office of the future" which was mostly various DEC equipment and cute girls.

19:36 <efc> *big white

19:36 <zombie67> wyse

19:37 <efc> got a wyse wt150 here, haven't bothered to try to sell it.. probably worthless

19:37 <zombie67> TM:  I think the moderators are being intentionally dense and contrary, just out of spite

19:38 <Tank_Master> no, I do know intel has aquiered what was left of DAE and its workers

19:38 <Tank_Master> lol, either that, or trying to rial some people up like the SETI boards do

19:39 <efc> DEC was good at picking cute girls for their literature

19:39 <Tank_Master> hehe

19:41 <efc> the cute, intelligent kind, that I can't ever find, but I digress

20:32 *** zombie67 has quit IRC

20:33 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

20:35 <zombie67> I have all my machines 100% @ WCG, except for my PII/linux machine.

20:35 <zombie67> I just noticed that PII/linux box has a LHC WU!

20:37 <zombie67> LHC seems to be down right now.

20:37 <zombie67> so I can't see if they released a bunch of new work, of if this was just a fluke

20:37 <PovAddict> stupid firefox...

20:38 * zombie67 uses Safari

20:38 <PovAddict> for the 20th time, I click Post reply, and switch to another tab with the keyboard, and it hangs

20:38 <PovAddict> it doesn't do that too often... usual thing when I do that in a rapid succession is a crash, not a hang :<

20:46 *** freelarry_test has quit IRC

20:53 <PovAddict> just hanged again, on a different situation

21:05 <zombie67> 7211 LHC WUs!

21:05 <PovAddict> !

21:05 <zombie67> crappy timing!

21:05 <PovAddict> the hell?

21:06 <zombie67> happened before too.

21:06 <zombie67> it showed many tasks available, but unable to be downloaded.  lasted for a week or two

21:06 *** efc has quit IRC

21:07 <zombie67> in any case, I do have one unit on my PII/linux box

21:20 <BadBarbarian_> has larry been on

22:10 <zombie67> i see the available work going down, but I am getting none of it...

22:12 <zombie67> ah, all in progress, out of work

22:13 <zombie67> and I got none

23:13 <zombie67> growing pains.  why?

23:13 <Tank_Master> its offline

23:14 <Tank_Master> imp is still down for a while, correct?

23:14 <PovAddict> it's in a bit of "I dont care about it" status

23:14 <Tank_Master> got ya

23:25 <zombie67> Pov:

23:25 <Romulus> <> (at

23:27 <zombie67> I missed all ~7000 results on LHC

23:29 <Tank_Master> gaa

23:30 <Tank_Master> I got 1 WU out of all that

23:30 <PovAddict> I got 3

23:30 <PovAddict> pwn all of you

23:30 <Tank_Master> but a tone pending from Nov 9th

23:30 <zombie67> many many projects have been going down lately.  I wonder if there is a stability issue with BOINC

23:30 <zombie67> I got one before any of you!

23:30 <zombie67> and then that was all.

23:30 <zombie67> :(

23:31 <PovAddict> well that was my argument against the self-contained VM with a boinc server

23:31 <PovAddict> any noob that gets the VM and runs it, but isn't smart enough to set up the boinc system without that VM, probably isn't smart enough to do proper server maintenance or backups etc

23:32 * zombie67 thinks IMP is really just a playground for Pov to play with the BOINC SW

23:32 <PovAddict> 'tis, sort of

23:33 <zombie67> my PD -> C2Q upgrades have been running stable for long enough.  Time to crank up the OC!

23:33 <zombie67> why are so many people jumping on 6.x?

23:33 <PovAddict> I don't know

23:34 <PovAddict> it caused bad problems on enigma, they had to ban that version

23:34 <Tank_Master> huh

23:35 <PovAddict> well I read it caused problems, and the crash reports, and the admin (and Ageless) blaming 6.x

23:35 <PovAddict> the 'banned that version' is a bit of a rumor I heard

23:35 <Tank_Master> I know it wont work with depspid

23:36 <Tank_Master> "missing info from server"

23:36 <Tank_Master> "cannot get work"

23:37 <zombie67> TM:  you are using 6.x?

23:37 * PovAddict watches his cursor move on its own... heh, funky optical mouse

23:38 <zombie67> got a hair in the hole?

23:38 <PovAddict> about to reach screen corner

23:38 <Tank_Master> I have it on a few, yes

23:38 <zombie67> that happens to me lot

23:38 <zombie67> heh!

23:38 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: you have what, a hair in the hole?

23:38 <PovAddict> xD

23:38 <zombie67> pet hair is a pita with optical mice

23:39 <Tank_Master> will be making sure they are are not 6.x.x before depspid comes back up

23:39 <PovAddict> I know somebody who used to fix computers

23:39 <PovAddict> he said he can easily recognize pet owners and smokers

23:39 <PovAddict> *very* easily

23:39 <Tank_Master> lol

23:39 <Tank_Master> yes it is

23:40 <wdsmia> Hey I resemble that remark

23:40 <wdsmia> :P

23:40 <MTughan> So I've seen in my time too...

23:41 <PovAddict> MTughan: you have a cat...

23:41 <PovAddict> how's the cat hair inside computer cases?

23:41 <MTughan> And a dog. :P

23:41 <MTughan> Actually, I haven't really seen it in my computers. Mostly on the keyboard.

23:42 <PovAddict> MTughan: you may want to start charging...

23:42 <PovAddict> people at rieselsieve needing mac apps

23:42 <MTughan> Heh...

23:42 <PovAddict> /join #rieselsieve

23:43 <zombie67> ebay is the worst...

23:43 <zombie67> you get packages from smokers....
